THE WASHINGTON TDEES, TUESDAY, SEPTECBER S, 1914.
11 THE BEST Photoplay Department in WASHINGTON Success of the New Season Depends Largely On Patrons Now that the new season Is about to start and so much promise is held out to the patron jf the photo play for the best and most satis fying form of amusemen, would It not be well for the patron to re member that he owes a little some thing to the exhibitor and producer In return for the amusement he Rets? The responsibility for the quality and character of the photoplay does not entirely rest on the shoulders of the exhibitor even if he shows the slightest Inclination to make his ser vice a benefit to the public. And the man who tries the hardest can not hope to succeed w lthout the co operation of his patrons. There is a. large class, among the patrons of the photoplay who go Into a theater and dare the exhibitors to amuse them. This is tho class of people w no sit grimly in their seats and refuse to smile or be interested unless they are compelled to do so. And no photoplay house in the world can hope to always ple&se such a class. There Is another and a larger class, however, which is honestly seeking recreation and is genuinely apprecia tive of efforts to provide it. Tills is the class on whom the exhibitor de pends for his regular patronage and it is this class which must make its wants known in order to permit the exhibitor to furnish the best sort of entertainment. We have taken occasion from time to time to point out the weak points In the exhibitors end of the game for the purpose of improving the class of pictures that are shown to the public We have urged the ex hibitor to "consult the wishes of his patrons in order to build up a busi ness that is worth while and to pro- ide adequate amusement for the people who want it. Can we not with equal sincerity ask the patron to help the exhibitor attain this de gree of efficiency? The exhibitor has no way of knowing what the patron wants unless he is told. lie has no way of learning what would suit best unless he Is given some indication of his community's likes and dislikes. And when he has ilated with a program, it helps him nightly to tell him so. The exhibi tor's business 's not a bed of roses, jou know. He has a great deal to contend with in the selection of the pictures he shows at his house. In a racent article on the subject W. Stephen Bush put the difficulties of the average exhibitor in an effective wa Among ether things he said. "Keen observers of the present conditions in the film industry have summarized the situation as a con stant battle between the regular program and the irregular feature. Few exhibitors will fall to agree with this definition. The greatest taok of the exhibitor today is to balance his program with an equal regard for the advantages which a regular pro gram gives him and for the benefits its features are supposed to insure. With but one notable exception pro ducers and distributers of regular programs have been unable to fullv meet the demand for a first-class feature service This fact occasioned no surprise, indeed one might say that experienced and intelligent ex hibitors discounted it months in ad ance. It took no great powers of discernment to realize that the same kind of wood does not usually fur nish the raw material for both the kitchen table and the parlor table Appreciating this fact the ex hibitor began to look around for what he considered the best and mot harmonious combination of a regjlar program and a feature sery Ue He found himself plunged in dificultles The group of producers anl distributers organized on the basis of a firm weekly supplv were naturally reluctant to let the ex hibitor do his own choosing. If he came to theTi for their best and their beet onH he found himself viewed w th nispk-on If not with disfavor The might be willing to part with thefr best only for a big and well Known theater Tliev would make exceptioi al barzains with the 'big In gs' anions the managers, know ing that the ehibition of their films "n the b'gheet rlass of theaters would help to a.dvertii-e their product cenerallv The managers with whom the frganized producers and dif trl -iters were lml.ned to make such contracts are -vtrv few indeed. When the ordinary exhibitor ap pears with a demand for tl. best onlv he is discouraged and told that he mubt take 'the bitter with the sweet' He is. of course, free to Fjbvtritif for the entire service and then show only what he likes or rather what he thinks his pat-ons will li-e The rest he may do with as h r.lf aes keep it in the booth or rm it ! k to the express office at on e Thin of courfoe. is a ery expersive proceeding for the ex hibitor but it hah to my own certain knowledge been put I" practice and followed bv tome mfasiiT of sucees". Subscribing for two or mor. ,eiv re. and using onlv the best is. of rotirse ar almost heroic remedj. and Hie average exhibitor cannot aford vj ha step His public, as a r-ile, is jst as eager for the lest as h- jblir In the first-class theaters ')a after day he Is compelled to Mhten to the plaint of his patrons telling him he shows too many pic tures of 'one kind " Between the ex hange whi-h seeks to 'load him up' with all that comes out of the ptodii'-nr mill and the insistent dcronrid for rualit plus variet . he has a hard row to hoe WHAT THEY'RE SHOW ING IN WASHINGTON.

Scene From "The Million Dollar Mystery". At the Olympic Tonight. New York Dancers Decree Two New Steps for Winter One Is Called La Russe and the Other Is the Hungarian Social Dance. Both Charming and Apparently Not Difficult to Learn. By FLORENCE E. YODER "The time has come," the walrus said, "to talk of many things, "Of shoes and ships and sealing wax, of cabbages and kings." The walrus, as per usual, was perfectly right, but as there had been enough talk of cabbages and kings, and ships, and sealing wax of censorship, the only thing left to dissect by the ever wakeful pub lic is the shoe or foot question. Despite the all-enveloping nature of the war, who is there who can stand up and deny that back of all that interest there is a badly concealed sneaking desire to get someone off in a corner and whisper. "SAY, I know all that, but WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO DANCE THIS WINTER?" Don't feel cut up about it, everyone has the same impulse, it is perfectly natural, and fust because the war news has crowded Car ranza onto the third and forth pages, is no reason at all why the dance question is going to be entirely ignored. The American Society of Professors of Dancing, which concluded its thirty-seventh annual convention in New York yesterday, has moved and passed upon the dance question, and their dictum has been set forth in many nice easy words, far more pronounceable than some foreign words that could be mentioned at this writing. Louis H. Chalif, the vice president of the society, has given out detailed advice on some of the steps. In order that the impatience of the reader may be curbed, we will tell as much in a nutshell as possible and Kive all In the first chapter. Two points stand out prominently: First, the favorite ballroom dances of last winter, the tango, the hesita tion and the majcixe. will be as pop ular as ever this year, but each of them will be reduced to a simplified and standardized form. And. sec ond, two brand new dances will be fecn everywhere, both invented by New York danclnc masters. One of these dances Is called La Russe; the other is tbe Hunearlan social dance. Both were shown to the writer at the convention In the Hotel Majes tic esterda. They were found to be charminc and apparentlj not difficult to learn How the Tango Will Be Danced. But first whats solnc to happen to our old friends. Tango & Co If jflu woultl he up to th mln "t In jour ilanrliiK, atold the dip. Hold your partner looaelj.

Chalif. the New York vice president of the Amerl an Societv of I'rofessorn ot Dan cing, was asked. And Mr. Chalif obliginglj complied "I'roperly danced, the tango con sists of four steph " he began "The til st is a march step. This is fol lowed by the cortes and double corus Corl-s is .Spanish and incum, liurallj cut.' In dancing it denotes a dhorl step. The third step in the tango n el medio luna, too I alf-moon. to perform which tho dancers move in a hemi-circle The fourth and last &ti p is el pasbio.

"Tbe hesitation has only four fig uresfirst, the side hesitation . sec ond, the forward hesitation, third, the bpttcrfly. a weaving movement from side to side, and fourth, one heMtalion step, three waltz steps and a turn. "These aie the three standard forms of the three standard ball toom dances The fox tiot Is simply a modified turke- trot and it Is doubtful if it will be dancod to anv great extent next winter The lu lu fado is a variation of the inaxixo and will have a certain amount of popularity. La furlana and to tao are better adapted to exhibition pur poses than to the ball-room." La Russe. Mr. Chalif Is himself the originator of La. Russe. one of the two new dances which will probably sweep the ball-rooms next winter. Ther is more than a hint of militarism In the tense vigor of I.a Russo steps. This 1b how its oroginator describes the dance The Aral movement !s three march steps nnd our long, avvlft lept the aeeond movement consist of eight ahort, quick turns, the third movement, four long, anltt atepa and a stump; and. flnnllv, eight leng, svtlft, ateps. and n little kirk with, the toe pointing hm k nanl.
